12 Days of Christmas *Day 11* Mixing Non-Christmas Stamps + Altenew Giveaway

Hi Crafters, welcome back to Day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas Card Video Tutorials! I am excited to show off a few different styles using the same two stamp sets to show you how versatile stamps can be. I also wanted to show off how you can mix in non-holiday stamps to stretch your stamps to a whole new level. Today I created  clean and simple, traditional and elegant style cards.

For these cards, I used the Halftone Stars Stamp by Altenew along with the Evergreen Sketch stamp which is a beautiful layering stamp that I actually used in last year's series. Both stamps are very versatile and can be used on numerous occasions. You can use the halftone stars for birthdays or celebrations and the Evergreen Sketch for tree and forest scenes.

For the card above, I stamped the star in the centre of the card. I imagined it to be the star on top of the tree. I took the third layer of the Evergreen tree and stamped it along each indent of the star in versa mark ink and embossed it in gold. On the star points, I laid down some Nuvo Drops that matched the embossing powder. The sentiment is from the Holiday Wishes stamp but you can substitute any Christmas sentiment. Although, it is a recommended set because it has great sentiments for the insides of cards.

For the two cards above, I created a traditional card with green evergreen trees. These gorgeous layering stamps give it a dimensional look but it's not super realistic looking. I like the playfulness of the layers. For the third card, you can't get much more clean and simple. I die cut small stars from the Halftone Stars stamp and added them in the shape of tree. The Persian Blue colour is very striking.
